Who Gave You Permission to Notice?

Bizarre totem: Jared Loughner's notorious skull altar.

 Among the "warning signs" of  Jared Loughner's derangement, Time magazine instructs us, was his criticism of Federal Reserve Notes as "worthless." According to the custodians of acceptable opinion, this isn't a rational assessment of the intrinsic value of the Regime's ever-depreciating fiat scrip; it's a symptom of "paranoia," just like Loughner's reported preoccupation with government mind control.

Only those who are clinically deranged could harbor such anti-social views about the government ruling us --an institution representing the refined essence of benevolence, administered by beings of infinite competence whose digestive by-products emit the pleasant odor of freshly cut daisies. This is why the State's media auxiliaries (including the right-collectivists over at National Review) are largely ignoring Loughner's sociopathic indifference to the rights of other individuals while focusing tirelessly on his alienation from the government

Perhaps Judy Clarke, Loughner's federally appointed defense counsel, can help cure him of his paranoid political delusions. Clarke is the go-to public defender for people accused of politically sensitive high-profile crimes.

A Time magazine profile of Clarke describes her as "particularly skilled at working with unstable clients who, without careful guidance, run a high risk of self-sabotage in what is a life-and-death situation." 

Clarke's clients have included Timothy McVeigh, so-called "20th Hijacker" Zacarias Moussaoui, and Eric Rudolph. Although McVeigh was executed, Moussaoui and Rudolph are serving life sentences at the ADX Florence supermax prison in Colorado. The same facility houses another of Clarke's notable clients:  "Unabomber" Ted Kaczynski, who killed three people and wounded more than a dozen others during a seventeen-year parcel bomb rampage.

Clarke persuaded Kaczynski to accept a plea bargain based on "mental defect." Although Kaczynski is said to suffer from paranoid schizophrenia, there's compelling evidence that any "mental defect" that afflicts him is the result of his involvement as a test subject in a federally sponsored mind control experiment as a Harvard student in the late 1950s.

Ted Kaczynski as a young professor.

By any measure, Ted Kaczynski -- a math prodigy who skipped two grades -- was a brilliant and promising young man. After enrolling in Harvard as a 16-year-old, Kaczynski was lured into acting as a guinea pig in a series of abusive and damaging psychological tests supervised by behavioral psychologist Dr. Henry Murray. 

During World War II, Murray worked with the OSS (which would later become the CIA), developing psychological tests to evaluate potential spies. He also devised methodologies for interrogating POWs. His experiments at Harvard continued seamlessly from his work with the OSS.

Murray's study, which was funded by the Pentagon, the CIA, and the Rockefeller Foundation, was entitled "Multiform Assessments of Personality Development Among Gifted College Men." According to Ted's brother David, this program was not a sterile academic exercise; he describes it as "a conspiracy of psychological researchers who used deceptive tactics to study the effects of emotional and psychological trauma on unwitting human subjects."

Dr. Murray, who died in 1988, "was known for his brilliance and grandiosity" in his professional life, continues David Kaczynski. "In his personal life, according to his biographer, he displayed sadistic tendencies. His research on college men bears a certain resemblance to his research on prisoners of war." 

Most of the pertinent details of Murray's experiments are inaccessible: Harvard sealed the files in 2000, insisting that this was necessary in order to protect the "integrity" of the project. There is cause for suspicion test subjects may have been given LSD or other mind-altering substances, given that the CIA had conducted experiments of that kind with other Harvard students. Whatever happened to Kaczynski and Murray's other subjects was sufficiently degrading and harmful to wring a guilty expression of regret from one of the doctor's assistants.

At age 17, the future Unabomber was one of 22  students who were required to submit to Dr. Murray a detailed description of their upbringing, their everyday routine -- including intimate details involving sexual fantasies and toilet functions -- and a description of their "philosophy of life." They were informed that another student would be invited to discuss and debate their moral values and opinions with them. 

Each of the subjects was taken individually into a white, over-lit room, placed in a chair in front of a one-way mirror, and tethered to EEG machines and other monitoring devices. The atmosphere, according to one subject, was akin to what one would expect in an execution chamber. Rather than having an amicable debate with a fellow undergraduate student, each of the test subjects -- perhaps "victims" is a more suitable description -- was subjected to lengthy, abusive harangues by a law school student who had been given a detailed psychological battle plan by Murray. The spectacle was captured on camera, and each victim was required to relive his humiliation on film.

This was sadism in the service of ideological ambition. The specific focus of Murray's academic research, points out environmental journalist (and fellow Harvard alum) Alston Chase, was to develop a science of personality "transformation." Murray "advocated implementing the agenda of the World Federalist Association, which called for a single world government," Chase noted in a detailed survey article published ten years ago in The Atlantic. 

In a letter to his friend and counselor Lewis Mumford, Murray wrote: "The kind of behavior that is required by the present threat [of nuclear war] involves transformations of personality such as never occurred quickly in human history." Through the marriage of psychiatry and sociology, Murray hoped to beget a hybrid discipline that would eventually create a New World Man suitable for citizenship in the World State he envisioned.

It is indisputable that Murray's Harvard experiments were a continuation of his work with the OSS.  Substantial evidence suggests that Murray's program was part of the CIA's MK Ultra program, in which test subjects -- often college-age men -- were used in experiments involving "sensory deprivation, sleep learning, subliminal projection, electronic brain stimulation, and hallucinogenic drugs to study various applications for behavior modification," recalls David Kaczynski. "One project was designed to see if subjects could be programmed to kill on demand. Experiments were conducted in penal institutions, mental institutions, and on university campuses." 

A 1967 internal CIA assessment documented that hundreds of professors on more than 100 college campuses were involved in clandestine experiments connected to MK Ultra. 

For drawing a link connecting Ted Kaczynski's crimes with what he suffered under the ministrations of Dr. Murray, David Kaczynski might be accused of engaging in special pleading on behalf of his brother, who admitted to murdering three people. 
The same cannot be said of Sally Johnson, the forensic psychologist hired by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons to evaluate Ted Kaczynski during his 1998 trial. 

While Johnson doesn't directly implicate Murray's experiments, she did conclude that Kaczynski's self-appointed mission as an apostle of "revolutionary violence" was triggered by something he experienced at Harvard. 

A psychological evaluation of Ted Kaczynski conducted prior to his experiences under Dr. Murray found no signs that he suffered from schizophrenia. It's reasonable to surmise that the "mental defect" invoked by his defense counsel was induced, rather than innate. 

Furthermore, there was nothing defective in Kaczynski's perception of the malign nature of the system as he had experienced it. His frequently expressed concerns "about the possibility of mind control," as Chase points out, were not "paranoid delusions. In view of Murray's experiment, he was not only rational but right. The university and the psychiatric establishment had been willing accomplices in an experiment that had treated human beings as unwitting guinea pigs, and had treated them brutally."

Murray's program was discontinued in 1962, the same year that Kaczynski graduated from Harvard. That year was a busy one for those employed by the academic wing of the Military-Industrial Complex, as they continued to toil away at various esoteric projects exploring the use of applied psychology to build the Total State.

At Yale,  Stanley Milgram was conducting his notorious  pseudo-electroshock experiments on obedience to authority.* At MIT, Lincoln P. Bloomfield finished a report -- funded by the US State Department on behalf of the Institute for Defense Analyses -- entitled A World Effectively Controlled by the United Nations: A Preliminary Study of One Form of a Stable Military Environment. (Bloomfield's report didn't envision a foreign takeover of the United States through the UN, but rather the creation of "supra-national institutions, characterized by mandatory universal membership and some ability to employ physical force" -- something akin to the vaguely UN-centered "coalition of the willing" approach used by Washington it is war against Serbia in 1999 and in its continuing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.) 

Bloomfield's report contained the provocative and telling observation that building the world order he described would require "a grave crisis or war to bring about a sudden transformation in national attitudes sufficient for the purpose.... [T]he order we examine may be brought into existence as a result of a series of sudden, nasty, and traumatic shocks." This would have meant subjecting the population at large to the same  kind of "transformative" psychological trauma that Dr. Murray had prescribed to create the New World Man on an individual basis. 

Three days after Bloomfield submitted his report, General Lyman Louis Lemnitzer, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, filed a memorandum for Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara outlining "Operation Northwoods." That document outlined the use of various potential false-flag terrorist incidents that could be used to provide a pretext for war with Cuba. In his book Body of Secrets, intelligence analyst James Bamford observes that the bogus Gulf of Tonkin incident used to justify the Vietnam War was a variation on the Northwoods strategy.

The Northwoods memo offers a variety of potential provocations involving staged terrorist attacks.

"We could sink a boatload of Cubans en route to Florida (real or simulated)," wrote Lemnitzer, casually spit-balling proposals that would result in the death of  innocent people. "We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots ... would be helpful." Lemnitzer's most audacious proposal -- which is especially noteworthy in the post-9/11 era -- involved the staged shoot-down of a civilian jetliner.

 The Northwoods memo was a battle plan for psychological warfare against the American population -- a menu of options for inducing the "sudden, nasty and traumatic shocks" necessary to bring about a desired political transformation. This was just one of several projects of its kind underway at the time. And Ted Kaczynski was just one of hundreds -- perhaps thousands -- of people whose minds were being weaponized by the CIA's academic assets.

"The CIA's mind experiment program was vast," notes investigative reporter Alexander Cockburn. "How many other human time bombs were thus primed? How many of them have exploded, with the precipating agent never identified?"

Interestingly, Gen. Lemnitzer helped ensure that those questions wouldn't be answered. In 1975, six years after he retired from the military, Lemnitzer was appointed by Gerald Ford to participate in the President's Commission on CIA Activities Within the United States, commonly known as the Rockefeller Commission. That body -- like its ancestor, the Warren Commission, and its descendant, the 9/11 Commission -- was intended to filter out any consideration of the most important questions, thereby banishing them from polite conversation. 

Whatever its clinical definition might be, the term "paranoid" as employed by the custodians of polite opinion refers to someone who notices things without official permission. People meeting that description might take impermissible notice of the curious fact that the same defense attorney who quietly ushered Ted Kaczynski off the stage is now being called on to perform the same service with respect to Jared Loughner -- and be prompted by that fact to ask some similarly unacceptable questions.

*Dr. Sharon Presley, an authority on the Milgram experiment, states emphatically -- and, as far as I can tell, definitively -- that "Milgram had nothing to do with any MIC [Military-Industrial-Complex] project." She also points out, correctly, that Milgram's experiments did not involve the kinds of abuse that Murray's project entailed. I regret my inaccurate description of Milgram's study as a project of the MIC's academic auxiliary, and the implication that his methods were comparable to the unconscionable abuses committed by Murray.

The scariest thing I ever did in college was read 1984 while taking the standard Psych 101 class. It was absolutely shocking to me the way most people can be manipulated into doing just about whatever you want if you have a good enough understanding of how the mind works. The marketing industry knows this, and uses it to great effect in ways we don't even notice to get us to buy what they're selling. It would be foolish to believe the government and its assets in the faux-free media aren't doing the same thing to us every day - although the 'products' they're selling are wars, torture, mass imprisonment, heavy taxes, a constantly shrinking circle of freedoms, and generalized poverty ('austerity'), etc. We're doomed until we collectively wise up to all the ways - most of them very subtle and subconscious - our thoughts are being controlled and manipulated every day.

Books by Hitler and Marx are what set off the bravo sierra detector. If you like one you are not going to like the other. An obscure Russian page had an interesting theory, Judge Roll had ruled against federal money confiscation and was the target in Tuscon.

Dave P. said...

The one thing I've realized over the past couple of days in regards to the Tucson shooting is that Giffords wasn't the primary target. If I remember correctly, didn't the federal judge who was killed issue a recent ruling against one of king Obama's imperial decrees?

Concise as usual.

Thought for a moment you were about to mention the oddity of Laurel Canyon as a segue from this line:
A 1967 internal CIA assessment documented that hundreds of professors on more than 100 college campuses were involved in clandestine experiments connected to MK Ultra.

For the uninitiated one may read up on how the sons and daughters of the Military Industrial Complex and families of privilege, congregated in this particular area. From which spawned the hippie movement, the counter cultures flagship rock groups and film icons.

Suicides, murders, arson, etc., were rife amongst the inhabitants. The most notable being the underlying influence of Charles Manson.

For the reporting written by David McGowan you'll need to visit the following link as his website tends to exceed allotted bandwidth most of the time:

Pay particular attention to the facility at the top of the canyon - The Lookout Mountain Laboratory.
Where the facility retained as many as 250 producers, directors, technicians, editors, animators, etc., both civilian and military, all with top security clearances – and all reporting to work in a secluded corner of Laurel Canyon.

Then ask how the son of an US Navy Admiral; with no background or interest in music, arrived on the music scene with songs and music pre-packaged and destined for pop super stardom and early death. Especially since the father was at the heart of the Tonkin Bay Incident - George Stephen Morrison.

Dr. Strangelove’s Workplace indeed.

Thank You Mr. Grigg for your tireless efforts.

@ proliberate The most intriguing article I've read in a long time.

@Dave P. The federal judge was not an invitee to Gifford's event; he stopped by after church to chat. Though the conspiratorial angle is fascinating considering the fact that the aide died and would certainly know if this is indeed a fact or an oft repeated media-fed story. I thought it odd from the beginning that judge Roll was not with his family at church. Politicians are notorious for dragging their family to every personal event to portray the image. He was married with three sons and five grandchildren. I wondered why no one asked that question.

It seems that January is conspiracy month; I just wrote on political rhetoric tied into comments of a POTUS conspiracy; I don't believe it.

Anon @ 4:04 -- I'm puzzled by your difficulties over at Facebook. I was able to post a link to this piece, as was at least one of my Facebook friends. What your describe is weird and a little disturbing.

Judge Rolls was the Federal judge who ruled "the portion of the Brady Bill that required background checks for those who wished to buy guns illegal in June 1994" in the suit - Sheriff Richard Mack, Plaintiff vs. United States of America.

"Books by Hitler and Marx are what set off the bravo sierra detector. If you like one you are not going to like the other."

Actually, the difference twix the two is very minimal. The evil of both political philosophies is based on the belief that the individual is subservient to the state. Indeed, I would argue that Hitler was less evil than Stalin because Hitler at least loved something more than himself - he loved the Germanic people. Whereas the truly psychopathic Stalin loved only power - raw unrestrained power as described by the Capitalist-tool Lenin.
This same belief that the individual is subservient to the state is at the heart of the problem facing Amerika today.

But as to your suggestion that the judge was the true target, I could not agree more. Something is not as it seems here. The timing of this, the players involved, the political theater, the lack of video on the actual shooting, something false flag/covert op smacks here. The gov'ment is always guilty until proven - by a jury - innocent.

Lawyers who handle capital felony trials are specialized; SCOTUS has commented on the fact that PD's have had a history of failure to adequately represent clients. We see the same lawyers because of the The Capital Defense and Trial Services Unit. States

So far we only have reports that there is a video. I have yet to see it. And isn't it curious that it has taken over a week for the video to come to light? Just like the "video" of the plane hitting the Pentagram - I mean Pentagon - being released to the public way late, this "video" will also be very sketchy on details. I ask again, since when does a congress critter do a meet and greet with the public and not insist there be a local TV news crew there to cover the wonderful event?

'Kaczynski's self-appointed mission as an apostle of "revolutionary violence" was triggered by something he experienced at Harvard.'

Likewise, one fears that Bernanke's self-appointed mission as an apostle of "revolutionary monetization" was triggered by something he experienced at Harvard.

Today begins the 23rd year of the Harvard-Yale presidency (the Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama administration). To paraphrase Ed Koch, "How are we doin'?"

You are absolutely correct in pointing out that our Kongress Kritters never miss an opportunity to have their face plastered either by the TeeVee (preferable) or local news rag (plan B). So it begs the question: Whats up with that?! Just like all other "evidence" that gets sanitized, or experiences convenient "technical difficulties", you wonder if this too will mutate.
